The unnamed man in Alberta liked something about Armstrong’s Glen Grywacheski.
Liked him enough, about 10 years ago, to sell Grywacheski two incredible vintage automobiles out of his collection: a 1921 Studebaker, and a 1914 Hupmobile.
Yes, a Hupmobile. Named after manufacture Robert Hupp who started building the car in 1911.
“It’s a four-door touring, open car, and it’s an original,” said Grywacheski. “It’s never been restored.”
It has never been on display until now.
Grywacheski’s 1914 Hupmobile is part of three cars on display inside until Sunday at the Village Green Centre as part of the North Okanagan Chapter Vintage Car Club’s 20th Anniversary Father’s Day Car Show, which runs Sunday at the north end of the Village Green Centre parking lot.
The Hupmobile will then be on display outside at the show Sunday, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration for show runs for 9 a.m. to noon.
The car show will feature antiques, classics, customs and trucks. The show is open to everyone with admission by donation.
Proceeds from donations and from 50/50 draws during the show are donated by the club to Vernon School District high schools for the mechanics shops.
